Dell today announced the availability of the Dell Wireless Dock, a docking solution based on the latest multi-gigabit tri-band Wi-Fi standard (WiGig) and compatible with the Dell Latitude 6430u Ultrabook. The new WiGig standard connects with speeds up to 10 times that of today’s fastest Wi-Fi networks.
Designed for use in offices, meeting rooms and classrooms, the Dell Wireless Dock offers quick and easy connectivity to displays, projectors, networks, speakers and other peripherals.
The new dock supports up to two external displays with both DisplayPort and HDMI, features three USB 3.0 ports and facilitates easy collaboration with a front Audio In/Out port for voice over IP at speeds of up to 4.6 gigabits per second.
The Dell Wireless Dock can also be easily managed with the updated Dell Connection Manager that now supports both WiGig and Wireless LAN settings.
Especially ideal as a connectivity solution in conference rooms and classrooms, the Dell Wireless Dock supports cable-free, seamless transitions between multiple presenters and hassle-free collaboration. An adapter is available for VGA-based infrastructures and an Ethernet connector helps ensure dedicated, stable bandwidth for fast data transfers and efficient communication with remote locations.
Additionally, the Dell Wireless Dock has the same level of usability and easy integration as the current Latitude E Series Docking Stations with remote access, monitoring and configuration for business class control.
With the potential to offer many advanced uses, such as virtually instantaneous wireless backups, synchronization and file transfers between computers and handheld devices, the WiGig standard (802.11ad) is the result of close industry collaboration led by Dell and Wilocity. Based on the IEEE 802.11 standard specification for long-term stability, WiGig offers the same level of security and manageability as today’s best WLAN technologies.
